Nice brown mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of neutral, slightly sour-ish, dark malts, licorice, coffee, dark sugar, alcohol, almond essence, oak. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, dark sugar, licorice, oak, burnt caramel, dark fruits, grass, cocoa, cardboard. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice, but it’s still miles away from the wonderful Front Room.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
Rating #6000. 11.2 oz. bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small white beige head. Aroma brings out lots of sweet wine (port), followed by caramel and candied sugar - quite complex and decadent. Flavour is decadent and complex, with treacle toffee, just enough port barrels, and a touch of candied sugar. Wow, this is rich and elegant. One of Evil Twin’s best. This is marvellous.

Poured from tap to glass. Deep copper red hue with fizzy brown head. Aroma is wood, wine, figs, toffee, caramel. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a wood dryness and an ethanol finish. Overall this is a great brew.

fredfa (234) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2015
Muito forte e tambem muito saborosa. Baixo amargor e predominância do doce. Se tivesse maior drinkability, seria perfeita.

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle at Torst, 03/30/2013. Pours dark cola brown, slight haze on the surface, light lacing. Aroma has dark roasted malt, charred wood, light hop character, finish is toffee, dark fruity port, subtle tartness and even a little cheese, interesting. Taste is toffee, carame fudge, port notes, subtle funky edge, nice roast offset. Almost an aged, musty quality as well. Big bodied, smooth. Wow, very nice.
